Revell '57 Chevy Bel Air

Recommended Posts

I recently finished up this Revell Snaptite Max kit.  Overall, not a bad kit.  It is nice to build a straight forward kit without all of the detailing.  You can find the WIP here: 

I hope you all enjoy this one.  Let me know what you think.

Looks great in those colors!   I actually liked it before you added the red, the gold roof with silver body looked good too!

Beautiful model !  Love the color choices.

Thanks, Ray!  When I was looking for inspiration on the internet, I only found one car in this color combo.  I’m happy with them!

Thanks, Tom!  I was sharing my work in progress with a group of modeling friends and one of them said the same thing.

Beautiful paint work and finish John!

What a clean build that is 😎 How did you keep the glass so clean? , I have a problem with that...

Cheers

Wow!  Thanks for all of the nice comments, guys!  I thought it was a nice kit for a SnapTite.  I’m no expert on 57 Chevys but had read that this was a good kit, body wise.  Based on the comments, the color combo was a good choice! 😎  Thanks again!

Bruce, not sure if you saw my posts in the “Workbench” section. This was the second set of glass.  The first set broke on me when I tried to...”cough cough” force it into submission.  What you see is just the kit glass with no work done to it.  However, in the past I have completely dipped glass into a bath of Future with amazing results.  Thanks for the comment!

Excellent paintwork! I wish I could get paint to lay down like that.

Of course, the rest is well done too but the paint really makes it pop.
